for national defense and other reasons. but now they're loaning them out to local law enforcement and law enforcement's also buying drones directly. so they have high-resolution cameras, heat censors and sophisticated radar on the border protection drones that can help track criminal activity in the united states, just as the c.i.a. uses predators and other drones to spy on militants in pakistan, nuclear sites in iran and other targets around the globe. for decades, u.s. courts have allowed law enforcement to conduct aerial surveillance without a warrant. this is that sort of open spaces doctrine. i'm not saying it makes it right but the government has been doing it for decades. some of the courts have apparently ruled that what a person does in the open, even behind a back yard fence, can be seen from a passing airplane and is not protected by privacy laws. you know, i don't think i agree with that. if you're swimming in your pool in your back yard, if you're in your hot tub in your back yard, just because we have the technology to be able to see you in your hot tub, does that really mea

government to carrying out activities in violation of international law and the domestic laws of many other countries. for north korea these criminal activities are viewed as necessary to maintain the power of the regime with no regard for the fact that they are corrosive to international law and order. so the question is, what steps can we take to combat north korea's illicit activities, and can our efforts to prevent these activities be used to pressure north korea to abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs? now, i just heard on the news this morning that the agreement has been made ostensibly with china to punish north korea for its missile-launching nuclear tests. i hope that china will not do what it's done in the past and agree to sanctions and then just erode those sanctions so the sanctions really never took hold. i hope that china will finally understand that the north korean regime is a threat to stability in that region of the world and in many regions of the world, because as chairman royce pointed out, korea, north korea is a rogue state helping countries lik
blowers that there were gaps in federal laws concerning straw purchasers which should be addressed, and this is our opportunity to do it. mr. chairman, you have worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way incentive to address new gun c

of the senate law enforcement caucus today to hear testimony from kentucky and delaware about the justice reinvestment initiative. we flew some people in. unfortunately the inclim ate weather canceled it. it's a place where bipartisan bills at the state level have led with federal partnership to the critical catalytic investments in improving criminal justice systems. the bulletproof partnership is something -- i had a police officer from dover, delaware, a couple months ago, was shot twice close range in the chest and survived. the county where i used to serve, their lives were saved. we should be re-authorizing this program. i look forward working with you on that. last question if i could, in the same vein. the victims of child abuse act and the child advocacy centers that it funds, i think are an enormous resource for law enforcement and prevent the revictimization by children who were traumatized to be interviewed once. it has all the relevant folks there and present. the one i visited, a children's hospital in new cassel county, the resource for our community and our law enforcement

: what is your background? >> at american university, i teach a combination of business law and actually don't really teach in the way international law courses and public international law. i am a visiting fellow at the hoover institution in california, nonresident senior fellow at the brookings institution in washington d.c. and in those areas, most international security, this book, i am proud to say was published by the institution press, and i have a background that is schizophrenic, i have a background in finance and business and tax law and that sort of stuff. earlier in my career i was a long time non-profit lawyer and that sort of stuff, and general counsel to the george soros foundation and the open society. i have drifted to the right i have to say some what. before that i was the director of the human rights watch arms division in new york. i have another career in on profits of but also sort of the long background in transactional business practices a lot of which involve development and finance and international development issues and one of the things i enjoy it was the ch
years off from writing a budget which of course is their lawful duty. i think there is not enough print sometimes dedicated to imnovemberable democrats when they're, when they happen to be doing nothing. maybe this will help that. bill: let me put a fine point what he said. jerry, you need to understand, referring to senator moran, we're not going to do anything until after the election. bob, why would that be? >> for a couple reasons. first of all, this was during the time of the budget control act where they set up the super-committee from which all things were going to spring. you couldn't move anything having to do with finances until that committee made a decision or didn't make a decision as it turns out. that's one. and two, in when you move up to election year, presidential election year particularly, nobody does anything that will upset the applecart. bill: but mary katherine's point is you have your priorities. if you want to pursue something like confirmation of jack lew you can get that done in one afternoon. >> that's right. bill: the other big stuff when you have to show y

the law. but, now, a justice on that same court says the voting rights act, a law passed to help undo the legacy of dread scott, is "a racial entitlement." we all know that efforts to restrict the vote are well-under way. in north carolina, house republicans are voting on a new voter id bill. in wisconsin, a new bill would limit the hours of a in-person absentee ballot. charges have been filed against two volters tied with the gop. that's right, voter fraud is real. it's just being committed by republicans. yes, we need to continue to have laws that will protect fairness and protect equal rights. why do we need the government to do these laws? because tchs bad laws the government did that caused the problem in the first place. government must undo what government did. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton.

, the position the states are in as a result of the law being passed eric -- past. having said that, i think there is a lot that people miss with respect to the drivers of healthcare cost. i think part of this reflects the fact that our body politic is reluctant to accept certain realities of the academic literature. finkelstein's research demonstrated that one of the big drivers of healthcare cost inflation was the rapid expansion of federally subsidized insurance in the 1960's to medicare and medicaid. the provision of federally subsidized insurance is a big driver of health service consumption and puts a lot of upward pressure on costs. there of another academic studies. one basically look at the factors throughout countries that drive health inflation. one of the big factors is the rate of growth of government provided health care services. if we are with ourselves, we have to recognize that one of the big drivers of healthcare cost inflation is the extent to which the federal government is subsidizing healthcare through various means. it will be difficult for us to get that under contro

or too bad to be true, i think, and the fact that you've got law enforcement saying that they cannot verify this points to, to me, to the many examples, not just at oberlin, i don't want to single out my alma mater, but it's happene many, many times over the decades where things are hatched by progressives who are trying to prove that institutional racism exists in their lives when really, the racism comes from these leftists who are segregating the kids and raising their race consciousness in a very poisonous way. >> megyn: i want to tell the viewers, according to the guardian, the lieutenant from the oberlin police says the only witness to the alleged kkk sighting may have been mistaken. they could not verify the claims and arrested two students, but police say it's unclear if it was motivated by racial hatred or if they just wanted to make a commentary on free speech. there is a bit of a leaping to conclusions. i mean, people get, you know -- it evokes a viceral reaction when you see the n-word and the f-word and hear about somebody wearing a kkk robe walking by the african center
but extends the law with new protections for victims of rape and domestic abuse. the bill which first authorized in 1994 now offers programs to native americans, members of the lgbt community and undocumented immigrants. in signing the legislation the president dedicated the moment to those who have suffered and survived abuse. >> most of all, though, this is your day. this is a day of the advocates. the day of the survivors. this is your victory. because this is a country where everybody should be able to pursue their own measure of happiness and live their lives free from fear, no matter who you are. no matter who you love. that's got to be our priority. that's what today's about. >> meanwhile former president bill clinton is calling on the supreme court to overturn the defense of marriage act. or doma. a piece of legislation he signed into law 17 years ago which denies the federal recognition of same-sex marriages. in an op-ed for the "washington post," president clinton writes, we are still a young country. and many of our landmark civil rights decisions are fresh enough that the
